Nottinghamshire Second XI fell to two defeats at the hands of Lancashire in their most recent t20 outings.
In the first game, Nottinghamshire won the toss and elected to field with Stephen Moore and Alex Davies opening the batting for the visitors.
Notts struck in the first over when Brett Hutton removed Davies for 0 before Steven Cross fell to Luke Wood to leave the score on 10-2.
Moore departed for 19 in the fifth over off Ben Kitt’s bowling before Jordan Clark and captain Karl Brown rebuilt.
They had added 41 for the fourth wicket when Clark fell victim to a great catch by Tom Rowe off Sam Wood.
Brown reached his fifty in the 15th over and the score had reached 124-5 before the next wicket arrived, that of Wayne White for 23.
Luke Wood (2-34) claimed the only other wicket to fall from there on, that of Liam Livingstone for 13. The innings closed on 170-6 with Brown ending the innings unbeaten on 84.
Notts struggled from start to finish as they lost Matt Cross for three in just the second over to the bowling of White.
In the fourth over White took a hat trick, removing Sam Kelsall, Rowe and Nick Langford in successive deliveries to leave the home side on 19-4.
Sam Wood was the next to fall for 7 before Adam Tillcock and trialist Max O’Dowd took the total to 44 for the loss of no further wickets.
Tillcock left for 17 before Hutton was removed for 7 to leave the score at 53-7.
O’Dowd went for 8 and despite an unbeaten stand of 71 between George Bacon (66*) and Luke Wood (15*), Lancs ran out 34-run victors.
The stand out bowler was Wayne White 4-29 off 4 overs including the hat-trick in the fourth over.
In the second game, Lancashire chose to bat after winning the toss.
They suffered an early set back losing Alex Davies for 9 but Moore and Cross shared in a stand of 134 for the 2nd wicket.
That stand was broken in the 15th over when the former was out for 59 before Croft fell for 77 to leave the score on 158-3.
The innings ended with the final score of 198-6, Livingstone (19*) providing a late charge.
In reply, Notts lost Kelsall early on for 2 with fellow opener Cross being removed for 17 in the seventh over at the hands of Adnan Ghaus.
The bowler then struck again in the eleventh over to remove Rowe, caught for 5, with the score on 64.
Wickets fell in both the 12th and 13th overs with Langford and Tillcock falling for 3 and 1 respectively.
From there the Notts batsman had it all to do and despite the best efforts of Azad (42) and Hutton (32*), they eventually fell well short.
The final score was 133-7, Lancashire winning by 65 runs with Ghaus finishing with figures of 3-13.
